    Awesome. I'd love to get one. Obviously it should have a good compatibility [​IMG]

    I might get one of those. If I did, I'd buy another GBC off eBay and put a backlight mod in [​IMG]

    I still have a 128Mbit and a 256Mbit F2A cart with the GB converter [​IMG]. Though I can't remember where I put them or my GBA SP for that matter. [​IMG]

    It looks awesome especially the clear case and red PCB, and it has a built-in LED (just like the DS-X).
    The one on the website doesn't look like it has a SD slot though. [​IMG]

    it doesn't, he actually just copied the GPL'ed design of two polish students and refuses to release his modifications.

    What are you talking about? That's a fantastic, cheap, price. You must just be spoiled by the retardedly cheap prices of DS flashcarts. Which are way TOO cheap.

    If there is less quantity of something available, then the price goes up, that's economics 101. And flashcart hardware is pretty much mainstream anymore. I actually know a guy IRL who visits the site here at school for technical help. [​IMG]

    I wonder if there will be a GBA emulator available for it?

    HAH, I KILL ME! [/alf]

    Honestly, this looks half cool, and i understand its purpose, but it seems like too much too late. Unless there's some killer homebrew chiptune editors/trackers available for GB... THAT would be rad.

    And that's why most of those flashcards are made nowadays, trackers like LSDJ or nanoloop [​IMG]

    EDIT: Here's a LSDJ example:

    That's because it doesn't have an SD slot. This is a flash cart, not an SD card adaptor like all of those so called 'DS flashcarts'.

    Thing is that the prototype PCB posted in the OP features an SD slot.

    I e-mailed them and they told me it's 32MB of flash and 128k of RAM. Also they'll guarantee it for 6 months after the purchase.

    I think it's a good deal, It always bothered me that I couldn't play GB/GBC games off my G6 Flash without using Goomba (cause of the voltage problem). The price is really not high, my G6 Flash 4G and Passcard 3 cost like $100 less than 4 years ago.

    It is totally worth it.

    It's ½ the price I paid for my Dr. GB w\ linker.

    I ordered one. You should too.
